Maryville College, Jan. 1876. 

No. 5. 

To my beloved Vesta. 

Miss, I'm a Pensive Protoplasm, 
Born in some prc-lrstoric chrism. 
I iri'l my humble fellow men 
A. re hydrogen and oxygen. 
And nitrogen, and carbon, loo. 
And so is Jane, an 1 so are you. 
In stagnant waters swam our brothers 
And sisters, but we've manv others, 
Among them animalculae, 
And lizard's eggs — so, you see, 
My darling Vesia, show no pride, 
Nor turn coqurtti.-h head aside, 
Our pedigrees, as thus made out. 
Are no great things to boast about. 
The only comfort teems to be 
Is this — philosophers agree 
That how a protoplasm 's made 
Is mystery ou ,v ide their trade. 
And we aro parts, so say the sages, 
Of 1 ft come down from long pist ages. 
So let us haste in Hymen's bands 
To join our Pr toplastic h mds, 
And spend our gay organic life. 
A happy man and happy wife. 
London Punch. 


By D. M. W. 

Not a small part of the wisdom 
possessed by men consists in ac- 
quaintance with the connections 
and dependencies of things. A 
knowledge of isolated facts is of 
little value. Unless we know what 
relation one event bears to another 
we might about as well be igno- 
rant of both. One Mind has 
formed the plan of the universe, 

and in our world nothing can be 
named so minute as not to form a 
part of one stupendous whole. 
Cause and effect are seen every- 
where. A cause is that which 
produces change; and while there 
is one great First Cause, there are 
multitudes of creatures, depend- 
ent indeed for their own existence, 
yet while upheld, truly causes in 
their turn. We can create nothing, 
but we can observe what is about 
us, and thus enlarge our enjoy- 
ments, and increase our power to 
be useful. 

Thousands of years have passed 
since man was first formed, yet 
we may be sure that only a begin- 
ning has been made in exploring 
the works of God. The relations 
existing between things remain es- 
sentially the same from age to age. 
The "ordinances of heaven" hold 
on their way, paying no heed to 
what we call the "mutations of 
time,'' and working out their re- 
sult with unvarying exactness, and 
a certainty which is absolute. The 

laws of health and growth among 
the several species in the Aegetable 
and animal kingdoms, are the same 
as at the beginning. 

The violation of the order of 
God's empire is what introduces 
confusion and occasions distress. 
Our ignorance of a law we violate 
can not shield us from any part 
of the penalty. The lad, who ig- 
norant of the relation between fire 
and gunpowder, should throw the 

arnirig plump oi a cigar into an 
opened barrel of powder, would 
suffer the same as if he had 
planned the explosion. Political 
economy has its laws, and the 
Darty ignoring those laws must 
suffer in consequence. To com- 
plain of the issue would he child- 
ish. We see statesmen of opposite 
parties contending still about the 
wisdom or the lolly of a protective 
tariff. We do not infer from this 
disagreement that there are no 
fixed relations existing between 
trade and commerce on the one 
side, and national prosperity on 
the other. A 1 we infer from such 
discordant conclusions is that the 
subject is one of difficulty, and 
that the work of discovery pro- 
gresses but slowly. Invention is 
but the application of a formerly 
unknown or neglected principle. 
The propositions of Geometry 
were as true before as after their 
first demonstration. ''Kepler's 
laws", as they are called, were a 
discovery, but their use is 
manifold, and open to all. "Science 
from whatever motives it may be 
prosecuted is in effect and in real- 
ity an inquiry after God." An 
Humbolt and Tyndale may indeed 
in exploring nature have found no 
place for a God: but such men 
have labored and we are entered 
into their labors. If wisdom in 
artifice reflects honor upon the ar- 
tificer, then the more thoroughly 
nature be explored, the more of 
glory will redound to Him "whose 
nod was nature's birth and nature's 
shield the shadow of his hand." 

It is in the domain of morals 

that the study of relations is most 
interesting. Relations there ex- 
ist — law rules. Speaking figura- 
tively, we may "affirm of morals 
what was long 1 ago declared of 
matter — "-God hath ordered ail 
things in measure, number and 
weight." If authors on Moral 
Science as Dymond and Paley 
differ in respect to the principles 
which should regulate conduct we 
must not marvel, since the chemist 
even dealing in dead matter, has 
but made a beginning in the work 
of discovery. Right and wrong 
never exchange places, Moral 
distinctions are immutable. What 
men sow they reap. Ill choice in- 
sureth fate, and there is no escape. 
To be carnally minded is death, we 
are told, while to be spiritually 
minded is life and peace. There 
is that giveth and yet increaseth, 
and there is that withholdeth more 
than is well, yet it tendeth to pov- 
erty." Let any one attempt to 
search out the proof of these 
statements, and he will find an in- 
teresting work on his hands. If 
there be difficulty connected with 
such investigations the comprehen- 
sive views obtained will amply re- 
pay him. Let him to the extent 
of his power prove all things, and 
then hold fast to that which is 
good. It is a good tree which 
bears good fruit, and on the other 
hand a wicked law, or vicious in- 
stitution grinds out its grist of 
cursedness, whatever may be the 
opinions or prejudices of men 
about the matter. To write "good 
anger' on the devil's horns changes 
not the nature of the fiend. To 


make the whiskey traffic legal, 
abates not a drop from the deluge 
of woes with which it floods a 
land. It was sometimes said that 
slavery was from God; but slavery 
wrought out its legitimate results, 
cursing the very soil that bore it 
up, and its end was as a devour- 
ing flood. 

The history of an age is proph- 
ecy of that which is to come, just 
because like causes are at work. 
The man may be predicted from 
the character of the boy. A 
thorough knowledge of currents 
and cross-currents of the present 
time would give us great skill in 
predicting the future. 

Scottish Prsy. 


The history of Scotland is one 
which can be read only with the 
deepest interest, resembling as it 
does, a fairy tale or work of the 
imagination, more than a chroni- 
cle of the words and achievements 
of men mortal a» ourselves. Every 
plain, every hill and mountain, 
every glen and valley, every stream 
that winds its way among the 
banks and braes of the Highlands, 
every lake nestled among the hills, 
and every rock and crag has its 
own peculiar history, and many 
traditions and legends of exploits 
done hard by connected therewith. 

As regards its scenery we know 
it is unsurpassed in grandeur; 
and since even to aliens it seems 
so enchanting, we can not wonder 

at the boundless love and burning 
patriotism which, it is plain, has 
ever characterized the Scot. And 
again, since romantic scenery, and 
a chivalrous knighthood are the 
favorite inspirations of the muse, 
and love and patriotism the prin- 
cipal objects of her attention, we 
need not think it strange that the 
followers of Erato have been many 
and gifted in "Auld Scotland." 
As long ago as the times of Caesar, 
we read there were numerous har- 
pers among the then barbarian 
inhabitants of the unknown island 
the Romans traveled so far to sub- 
jugate, who by their fierce, ani- 
mated music, accompanied by in- 
spiriting battle songs, moved the 
arm of the warrior to do deeds, 
and win victories which caused 
the ruthless invaders to tremble 
and be astonished at the wonderful 
courage exhibited by their adver- 
saries. Nor in the piping times 
of peace was the minstrel placed 
aside as were the implements of 
war, for his services were then 
demanded to cheer the quiet which 
his harp had assisted in bringing 
about; for the ancients were as 
susceptable of being moved and 
excited by the songs of their na- 
tive land, as our soldiers of twelve 
years ago were of being inflamed 
with patriotic zeal and undaunted 
courage, by hearing the army band 
play '"Rally round the Flag,'' 
"Hail Columbia'' or "Yankee 

Aa Scotland advanced in refine- 
ment, she attracted the attention 
of the reading world by her num- 
ber of vigorous, original poets, as 

much as she did 'he attention of 
trie world of chivalry bv her con- 
tinued and noble efFoits for inde- 
pendence. James the First, of 
the unhappy family of the Stuarts, 
was, as is generally conceded, the 
most brilliant poet of the fifteenth 
century. The disasters and mis- 
fortunes which naturally befell 
him as a Stuart — for fate was 
againstthat family — seemed rather 
to brighten his mind than other- 
wise. His works, although writ- 
ton before the invention of print- 
ing, were widely read and 
applauded. lie was, in his age, 
the moon, aud the rest of the 
poets but satellites. Next came 
Gawin Douglas, brinerinsr with 
him such poetry as we might ex- 
pect from a Douglas, strongly 
expressed, warlike and yet softened 
at intervals by the soft touch of 
love. No wonder is it that so 
long as Scottish minstrelsy existed, 
the language of Douglas was 
treasured away as household words 
in the hearts of his countrymen. 
Robert Iienryson, and Blind 
Harry had also the disadvantage 
of living at the time when the pen 
was the only printer of books, and 
for this reason we know little of 
them; but the chronicles of the 
time say they were bright and shin- 
ning lights in the galaxy of authors: 
especially is mention made of the 
touching pathos of the latter 's 
poems. At the dawning of the 
sixteenth century dawned the 
genius of another, who, had it not 
been for the unfavorable circum- 
stances surrounding him, would 
have been classed with the"favored 

few." As it is, William Dunbar 
is called the "Chaucer of Scotland," 
and compared withnone of his coun- 
trymen save Burns. 

The beginning of the 17th 
century found Allen Ramsey, 
writing new songs and re-writing 
old ones, thus aiding very materi- 
ally to place Scotland far in ad- 
vance of the rest of the world in 
this kind of poetry, according to 
Hallam. Again, the 18th centu- 
discovered a youth named James 
Thompson, in a retired portion 
of Scotland, making his first 
obeisance to the muse. Seasons 
will be no more when his master- 
piece, "The Seasons," will be 
forgotten. James McPherson, who 
claimed to have collected fragments 
of verse while traveling in the 
Highlands, calling them the works 
of Ossian. although undoubtedly, 
he himself was the author, was a 
Scot. Of all queer, weird poetry 
it is the strangest, and has elicited 
the admiration of all reading it. 
Next in order we find Robert 
Burns, nature's truest, simplest 
and yet profound poet; be, upon 
upon whom the mantle of all the 
great poets preceeding him, fell, 
combining to make him as perfect 
as it is possible to become in the 
sphere in which he moved and 
labored. Taking him from the 
plow on to the time of his death, 
he has undoubtedly done a life's 
work for which the literary world 
cannot be too grateful. Although 
a reckless man, he wrote many 
poems the very models of purity. 
He is the pride of Scotland, the 
one whose words are engraved on 

tablets more enduring than ada- 
mant — the hearts of all his coun- 
trymen. But little below Burns 
in worth and reputation as a poet 
stands Sir Walter Seott. who nob- 
ly sustained his country's fame in 
both prose and poetry. His 
works present a commingling of 
all styles, and are particularly 
noted for the force of diction 
easily apparent in them. 

These we have mentioned ; re 
but a very small part of those of 
whose poetic genius Scotland is 
justly proud •. for scarcely a ham- 
let nestles on her bosom, unless 
it holds green the memory of 
some ''follower of the muss." The 
great secret of the irresistable at- 
traction lurking in each line of 
the poetry of Scotland, is the per- 
fect simplicity of the style, treating 
of objects which nature's observers 
and students in that clime find 
around them everywhere. Un- 
hampered by the stiff style obtain- 
ed by the neglect of the study of 
nature and too close study of books 
elsewhere so prevalent, they tell 
their story in the unaffected ryth- 
mic language of every day peasant 
life, and not in the formal lan- 
guage of a court, striving rather 
to find an entrance to the heart 
than to be admired through its 
beauty. Yes, when wearied with 
care and fatigued by labor, it is 
not to the pages of a Milton, Young 
or Pope that we go for a release 
from our situation ; but O Scotland! 
it is the incense of thy songs that 
relieves our condition, and makes 
us forgetful of the rest of the

Address The Student, 

P. O. Box 74, Maryville, Tenn, 


Wo have several new visitors 
on our exchange list this month, 
and these we welcome right heart- 

Carter & Wester, two Athens 
boys, "throw out upon the tissue 
wings of the breeze the first num- 
ber of the Monthly Sunbeam for 
public favor; a paper in its com- 
position that will he entertaining 
ana instructive to the snow haired 
as well as the young fastidious and 
gay." Brothers in the journalistic 
race, you have succeeded in your 
attempt; for undoubtedly your 
journal is entertaining. May 
the edifying rays of the Sunbeam 
penetrate everywhere. 

The irrepressible T. T. Mc- 
VVhirter of Athens has issued the 

first number of The ffiwassee Re- 
porter at Calhoun Tenn. Success, 
long life and prosperity to it. 

The Cnlhye Sibyl, a quarterly 
edited by the Senior Class of El- 
mira Female Seminary, is replete 
with well written articles. Let no 
one say that Ladies are not able to 
fill the editorial chair with credit 
to the profession.

been changed to its former' size, 
and has discarded its patent oat- 
side and is printed entirely at home 
now. By these changes its worth 
has been doubled. 

We have received the following 
exchanges this month: 

Lafayette College Journal. Col- 
lege Journal, College Sibyl, 
Oberlin Review. University Month- 
ly, Maryville Republican, Inde- 
pendent, Athens News, Hiwassee 
Ke porter, Chaiata Leaflets, Sun- 

We decided not to publish any 
January number, but instead of 
so doing issue a double one for 
-May. We think this will better 
as there Mill be a deal of Coin- 
men cement news, and we will 
need more room. 

We would call the attention of 
the public to the advertisement 
of John T. Anderson who has 
recently set up a book store in our 
town. Those who desire anything 
in his line will do well to give 
him a call before going elsewhere, 
and our students especially should 
patronize this enterprise. 


Profs. Sharp and Crawford and 
Miss Clute have monthly debates 
in their Rhetorical Classes thus 
increasing the interest materially, 
Prof. Crawford's Class occupied 
the Chapel at the last public ex- 
ercise and showed that it is a 
strong class. First came die de- 
bate on the question; "Resolved 
that the warrior has done more 
wood than the statesman."' "W. H. 
Franklin, G. S. Moore and G. A. 
Cochran affirmed it, and J. T. 
Gamble and G.C. Stewart denied. 
The speakers reflected credit upon 
themselves, teacher and class. 
Then I. H. Anderson delivered an 
oration on the subject. '-Be a 
man,'' giving healthy advice in a 
pleasing manner. "What shall 
we read?" was a question pro- 
pounded and answered eloquently 
and sensibly by J. W. Rankin. 
Then Messrs Clemens and Garner 
delivered declamations. In Prof. 
Sharp's class, at the last debate.

the rain and mud, a goodly number 
came together to the social in the

to make it more enjoyable within. 

Pros. Bartlett delivered an ad- 
dress on ''The relation of the 
Public Schools to every day life,"

terly effort, well received.

mother, in "Weston, Mo. , on the 25th of 
Jan., by Rev. P. J. Burrus, Mr. John

and Miss Lizzie T. Brady, 

Mr. Currier and bride arrived in 
Maryville on the 80th of Feb. 
Both having formerly been stu- 
dents of the college, this news 
created quite a sensation. The 
happy couple are located in 
Maryville, enjoying their "honey- 
moon" hugely. The best wishes 
of The Student for their future. 


Thirty Chinese boys, who are 
to be educated at Hartford, Con-

main fifteen years for completion 

of their education. 

The new chapel at Oberlin gives

that they can not only fill that 
place well, but that the other sex

'•There is nothing new under 
the sun," saith the preacher, but 
the students have been treated to 
something as novel as interesting. 
The Bainonian Society gave a 
public exercise on the 25th of this 
month. A large audience — larg- 
er than has attended any previous 
society exercise — crowded the 
college chapel to running over. 
The Society was called to order 
by the President, Miss Cora Bart- 
lett, and the minutes read by the 
Secretary, Miss Biddle. Miss 
Grade Lord as declaimer was the 
first to appear before the house. 
She delivered her piece, "My 
Ship," with great clearness of e- 
nunciation and with effect. Next 
also as declaimer, Miss Lizzie 
Brown ascending the stage, recited 
"■Dolly Sullivan,'' well meriting 
the applause she received. Then 
Miss Nellie Lord favored us with 
a composition in German. Some 
of the old gentlemen on the back 
seats thought that she did not pro- 
nounce distinctly enough! Next 
on the programme was the discus- 
sion on the question "Should 
woman be allowed to preach?' 
The debaters were, 

Affirmative; Negative; 

Sallie Henry, Mary Bartlett, 

Sara Silsby. Belle Porter. 

Rarely has a debate engaged 
the attention of its audience more 
than did this one. The speeches 
were not only bristling with argu- 
ment, but also couched in the fin- 
est of language. The decision 
was awarded in favor of the Neg- 

ative. The Bamohian Review, tie 
organ o1 the Society, was read by 
the editors Misses Maggie Henry 
and Mollie Biddle. Much of the 
paper was of real literary merit, 
and all were unanimous in pro- 
nouncing it well written. The 
whole exercises were interspersed 
with music. 

Since the Seniors have received 
their "walking - papers'' from the 
Rhetorical exersise, they are real- 
izing more than ever before that 
they are nearly at the end of the 
college curriculum, and are pre- 
paring their farewell salutes to be 
delivered to us at Commencement. 

Cupid was as busy as usual on 
Valentine's Day sending out 
dainty little missives, bordered 
with roses surrounding still 
prettier verses about admiration, 
friendship 'and love. Of course 
Memorial had its share, and many 
a smiling face could be seen as the 
contents of these notes were read. 
A few of the more fortunate ones 
received not only notes with loving 
words, but were also favored by 
the senders with their photographs. 

liev. Mr. Heron of Knox Co. 
delivered a deeply interesting lec- 
ture in the chapel, Wednesday 
evening, the 23d. "Intellectuality 
and Godliness" w T as the subject of 
the discourse, which was listened 
to with close attention by the stu- 
dents and many of the town people, 
stored as it was good things. 
Would that we could have lectures 
more frequently than heretofore. 


Animi Cultus. 

On the 27th of January, the 
Atiimi Cultus Society had their 
public debate and paper. The 
debate, on the subject ''Resolved 
that Poverty is a Blessing," was 
arranged as follows: 

Affirmative: Negative: 

J. E. Rogers, | G. McCampbell, 
R. H. Coulter. | J. B.Porter. 
After an animated discussion it 
was decided in favor of the nega- 
The paper was then read by the 
editor, Mr. Harris, and was 
attentively listened to by the 
crowded house. 

The 28th of January being the 
Day of Prayer for Colleges, the 
regular exercises were laid aside, 
and the day left free for apropri- 
ate public meetings and private 
prayer. At ten o'clock there was 
an interesting meeting in the 
chapel, led by the President, and 
at three the young men and ladies 
held separate meetings of prayer. 
At night, also, there was another 
meeting, at which the President 
delivered a short sermon. 

Since the Day of Prayer, nearly 
every day, either in the chapel or 
at the rooms of the students, short 
prayer-meetings led by the Presi- 
dent or carried on entirely by the 
students, have been kept up, from 
time to time varied with short dis- 
courses by the President. 

And now Base Ball has been 
resuscitated, and at its shrine bow 
many lads enamoured with the 
entrancing pleasures it bestows 
upon its devotees. Every favor- 
able afternoon finds an eager, ex- 
cited crowd on our magnificent 
grounds willing "to live and die for 
their king'' Base Ball. On Satur- 
day, the 26th an interesting game 
was played between the Reckless, 
a club just organized with George 
S. Moore as Captain, and the In- 
dependent Clubs, resulting in a tie 
of 39 to 39. More games on the 
docket. Students can find no 
better exercise than on the ball- 

Henry L. Heffron. 

Another one of our former fel- 
low students, touched by the icy 
finger of Death, on New Year's 
day was entrusted to the tomb. 

Sudden and saddening was the 
intelligence that H. L. Heffron, 
who but a few months before, had 
seemed so happy with his young 
bride, had been called away. He 
came to us from Michigan, "a 
stranger in a strange land," in 
1872, and left in 1874 to teach 
school in Cade's Cove. Here he 
won an estimable young lady, and 
located as teacher of a school hard 
by. His life is somewhat veiled 
in mystery. Little or nothing is 
known of his history before his 
arrival here. He came and went 
quietly, aud was of a retiring 
disposition. Possessing a good 
mind, he stood well in his classes.
